What is a cystocele?

Dropped Bladder

Bladder-prolapse
A cystocele is one category of pelvic organ prolapse. Childbirth, obesity & smoking are risk factors but it can happen to anyone. As we age our connective tissue weakens and various body parts begin to dropp and sag. A cystocele is when the tissue holding up the bladder weakens allowing the bladder to dip into the vagina. Some will notice a bulge or increased pressure feeling requiring surgery.

If during a female exam the Dr asks you to "bear down-as if having a bowel movement" we are looking for any weakness in the "pelvic floor"which is the area from the bottom of your pubic hair to your tail-bone.A bulge here suggests to us where the weakness is.
